Cashmere

While in Follina, we decided to go to what was called "a cashmere outlet". It was "by appointment only", and the hotel called and gave us an address that Parlabella (our GPS) could find. It was a private home with another apartment on the property for the cashmere yarns and completed items.

There was a large "showroom" upstairs, and a very gracious woman and her cute little dog.

I lusted over some of the beautiful sweaters and tried on a few shawls.

Everything was lovely, but it was ALL out of my price range. There were some fabulous shawls, but the smallest and least expensive was still 140 euros. That fell into the category of "no way". Don't let the word "outlet" sway your judgement. I'm sure those shawls and scarves retail for 200-300 E, but we thanked her and went on our way.
